The ISIL and al-Qaeda sanctions committee of the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) Tuesday struck off three of the six addresses, provided by India, as fugitive Mumbai underworld don Dawood Ibrahim’s addresses. This was done as part of regular updating of lists.
It is learnt that one of the three places listed as Dawood’s address belonged to Pakistan’s Permanent Representative to the UN, Maleeha Lodhi.
Of the remaining three still on the UN database one is a vague entry “Palatial bungalow in the hilly area of Noorabad in Karachi”. The other two addresses are listed as “Karachi, Pakistan (White House, Near Saudi Mosque, Clifton)” and “House Nu 37 – 30th Street – defence, Housing Authority, Karachi, Pakistan”.
According to the press release issued by the UNSC sanctions committee — a specialised organ of the UN which keeps track of terrorists’ particulars — the committee has struck off the address “Main Property at Margalla Road F- 6/2 Street no.22, House No.07, Islamabad number 29 in Karachi”. This address was later found to be similar to that of a residence belonging to Lodhi.The other two addresses struck off are “8th Floor of Mehran Square, near Pardesi House-3, Talwar Area, Clifton, Karachi, Pakistan” and “6/A Kjauabam Tanzeem, Phase-5, Defence Housing Area, Karachi, Pakistan.”
The listing gives details of Dawood Ibrahim’s passport and his several aliases.
